Creating a Flow for automating creation of a recurring task in Planner

Can anyone suggest me on how to set up a Flow that creates a task every month 5 days before a particular day of the month with that date as due date - It is a recurring task with due date fixed every month.

Hi @Deepjyoti ,

 

Assuming that the 10th of each month is Due Date of the task, please refer to the following method to configure Flow.

Use the formula below to get the full date of the 10th of the month.

addDays(startOfMonth(utcNow()),9,'yyyy-MM-dd')

Configure this date in Due Date field.

Hi @Deepjyoti 

 

Please see the screenshot below:task.PNG

Here, this flow runs on a particular day and creates the task with due date for 5 days from now. Can you share details on the scenario that you are building? especially the "Flow that creates a task every month 5 days before a particular day of the month " part?

 

Hope this Helps!

Is there a way to set a due date using this method if the frequency is twice per month instead of once per month?
